What Is Life in Heaven Like? Do People Have Bodies in the Afterlife?
According to reports from those who have passed on to the next realm, they all describe having a tangible body similar to their physical one while on Earth. However, they feel healthy, light, and free from any aches and pains. When they catch a glimpse of themselves in a reflection, they appear to be in their twenties or thirties, even if they had passed on in their later years. For those who transitioned as children, they grow up in the afterlife. There are no illnesses, deformities, or mental difficulties, and everyone has a body that is complete, healthy, vibrant, and youthful. The concept of “old age” and the associated physical limitations do not exist in the afterlife.
People May Wear Any Type of Clothing
People may wear the type of clothing they wore in Earth School when they first enter the next realm of life, but most eventually abandon the Earth School garb for comfortable, colorful, exquisitely designed robes and prefer a light sandal for footwear. However, some prefer to go barefoot.
A man named Claude, killed in World War I, described his garments through medium Gladys Osborne Leonard.
I dress as I did with you, but some people wear white robes because they think when out of the mortal body it is the correct thing to do. If I chose to wear a tunic and sandals, or Beefeater’s get up, no one would laugh and jeer; they would realize it made me happy, and that is reason enough.
Do People Have Bodily Functions?
George Harris, a builder in the life after this life, came through in a Leslie Flint session describing the fact that people can choose to eat or not, but if they eat, he was amazed to realize they never have to make a trip to a toilet.

I get the impression that we . . . I don’t know. When I first came here it seemed, I suppose, it was necessary to me to have certain things, meals and that. And now I don’t feel the urge so much. It’s funny that. And in consequence I don’t seem to need to eat. You don’t have to go to the toilet even. Isn’t it funny? I mean, you have a darn good meal and you’d think, well, later on, you’d have to go the joey [toilet], you know, but you don’t!
That’s a thing that shook me at first. Couldn’t make head or tail of this. And then they said, “Oh well it’s different. It ain’t the same old physical body,” as they call it, and “it hasn’t got the same, sort of, construction,” or whatever that is. And, uh, they said, “Really, this business that you want to eat and, others like you, feel the need for a cup of tea and all that, it’s only a state of mind.”
Course, I suppose, in some sort of way, what they say is true enough but, um, I suppose it is. But I’m so happy as I am in my own natural surroundings and carrying on the kind of things that appeal to me. And I meet many people now that I’ve made pals with.
